Another rainy May day. Come see me @barleywheatvintage Try on appointments give life to these garments that just sit pretty on our racks. Gives you a small glimpse into how our Empowering Sisterhood & You Are Beautiful, retreats go... Allows you to pre shop the collection before anyone else.
last week i posted 4 quotes that strayed from my norm.
Brian even asked me what i meant by a few of them.
they’re all related, but not in the same way you’re used to with me + senior pictures/headshots.
a few months back I had a few session requests from past seniors who were now graduating college.
my creative brain, and inability to sit still, started thinking how to incorporate telling the story of their NEXT CHAPTER.
we all love good stories.
it’s time for SMP to add another chapter into story mix by helping other graduates + small businesses create their BRAND STORY.
you caught the part where i said “add another chapter” right
i’ll always be ready + excited to tell your high school senior story, but just like you jump into new adventures i do the same. new additions are fun too.
i hope you’ll stick around + tag a friend or 2 who want to hear about the exciting additions coming to SMP
Thanks to everyone who got in on my earring sale! I now have room for more fun spring/summer styles. I only make a few of each pair, so if you see something you like —grab it! *REMINDER* these make great end of year teacher gifts, and they come wrapped and ready to go!

Chiropractic adjustments are my bread and butter. And for good reason!
But you may be thinking, what IS an adjustment🧐
Simply put, an adjustment is when a chiropractic physician determines areas of fixation or restriction and directs a specific force to induce normal joint motion.
Aka- an adjustment helps joints move better to allow the body to function better🙌🏼
Ok ok. But WHY should you get adjusted🤔
Well, everyone at one point or another has developed some form of compensation pattern throughout their lives. For example, maybe you lift with your back instead of your legs, maybe you slouch while sitting at work, maybe when you hold your toddler you favor one hip over the other.
Whatever the compensation may be, we all have one.
However, the more we adapt to this compensation, the less likely our body is to maintain proper joint function.
Enter- your chiropractor💁🏼♀️
Getting adjusted helps to correct and aid your body into moving how it’s supposed to move! Your joints will MOVE better, your body will FUNCTION better, and you will FEEL better 🌟
Interested in getting adjusted or seeing if it’s right for you Send me a DM and let’s chat🤙🏼

Today is National Dog Rescue Day! 🐶
Consider getting involved in the lives of rescue dogs. There are a variety of ways to share the puppy love. ✅ Volunteer at your local shelter. Taking dogs for walks, grooming and giving them plenty of affection improves their socialization.
✅ Shelters always need donations. Financial donations are always welcome. Most shelters have a list of constant needs, such as blankets, bleach, toys, treats, and leashes.
✅ If there is room in your life for a rescue dog, consider adoption and giving one a forever home.
✅ Consider fostering. Many dogs abandoned to shelters require some medical care or rehabilitation in a home setting before an adoption can take place.
✅ Remember to spay and neuter your pets. Overpopulation is the number one reason shelters exist.

Calling all dads, or not dads, or future dads, or guys looking to kickstart a workout and have a blast doing it. We just planned a killer day with @thebasementgymstc and @thedadlift for June 2nd! Come out to The Basement Gym (TBG) and get a workout in w us then head to the filling station for food and a beer.
Bring a gently used or new pair of kicks (any size) for you entrance to the workout. Then $20 gets you a sandwich and a beer plus it includes a $$ donation to Sneaker Heartz. The cash benefits an upcoming community sneaker donation I’m planning with my sister @katyd87 (social worker) to help out some amazing people she councils in a living center for adults with disabilities that could use some comfortable new shoes.
Come out and make that your Sunday workout! I’ll be there sweating more than most people should probably sweat 😂. #StCharlesIL #GenevaIL #FoxValley

Desperately seeking lost license plate for 20th century truck. It jumped off on a whim somewhere in the Fox Valley. Maybe in the @BlueGooseMarket parking lot. Maybe at the @GenevaLibrary. Maybe on the corner by @WaterStreetStudios . Who knows.
The last four confirmed digits are 1317 — see attached partial photo of rear plate. The missing front plate is metal (not magnetic) with a white background, red lettering, and blue embossed numbers. Sadly, it does not respond to voice commands no matter how firm or how gentle your tone.
The STC police issued me one verbal warning last night and the officer confirmed a ticketed warning could be next. I’ve alerted Jessie White to no avail. After repeated attempts to contact him earlier this morning, all my calls are now being immediately directed to voicemail.
The reward for safe and prompt return of this license plate is one signed copy of my latest book — see attached photo of myself and said book. The diaries for 2018 book will be handsomely delivered to your personal front door, or your preferred rendezvous location.
I know I could simply get replacement plates but first I need an emissions check and then I need to go to the DMV. And my poor truck needs an oil change. And then to make matters completely worse, it’s raining and thundering right now. Or it was at least when I started writing this.
Until this matter is resolved, my truck and I will continue to live on the edge of the legal system. Per usual. I should probably print up flyers and hang them at Blue Goose, the Fox Valley libraries, and Water Street Studios.
Please help. #HelpWanted #STCharlesIL #GenevaIL #BataviaIL
And yes, the book / plate swap is a real thing.

how do you tie it all together through your blog, social media, print...
